Club: CS Marítimo | Opening: 1957 | Capacity: 8,918 seats
History and description
Estádio dos Barreiros XXI officially opened on the 5th of May 1957.
In the following 50 years, only minor changes were made such as the conversion of the standing areas into seats.
However, by the turn of the millennium and with Marítimo’s increased participation in the UEFA tournaments, it became clear that the club was in need of a more modern home.
In 2009, plans were presented for a redevelopment of the stadium into a 9,000-all-seater, and soon after works were started. Works were expected to finish in 2010, however were halted before completion due to funding problems of the consortium in charge of the project. They have not yet resumed since.
Estádio dos Barreiros is located about 2.5 kilometres west of the city centre of Funchal (the capital of the island of Madeira).
Address: Rua Dr. Pita, Funchal
Tickets for regular league matches cost either €12.50 or €20.00. For the matches against Porto, Sporting and Benfica prices are increased to €20.00 and €30.00
